The World is the planet Earth and all life on it, including human civilization. In a philosophical context, the "world" is the whole of the physical Universe, or an ontological world (the "world" of an individual). In a theological context, the world is the material or the profane sphere, as opposed to the celestial, spiritual, transcendent or sacred spheres. "End of the world" scenarios refer to the end of human history, often in religious contexts.Before you head to Dubai, plan trip itinerary details with our user-friendly Dubai trip planner, to make sure you see all that Dubai has to offer, including The World Islands.
The history of the World is commonly understood as the history of humanity spanning the major geopolitical developments of about five millennia, from the first civilizations to the present. In terms such as world religion, world language, world government, and world war, the term world suggests an international or intercontinental scope without necessarily implying participation of every part of the world.
The world population is the sum of all human populations at any time; similarly, the world economy is the sum of the economies of all societies or countries, especially in the context of globalization. Terms such as "world championship", "gross world product", and "world flags" imply the sum or combination of all sovereign states.

This artificial archipelago is truly a masterpiece.
The "Underwater" World Islands project or a Universum size failure Islets imitating the world began to be built less than 15 years ago, about 4 km from the Dubai coast, and so far it seems that, literally speaking, they will drown this project :-) As far as I know, local sand was used for construction (this sand is not suitable for this purpose) and probably a few other mistakes were made because these islands are currently ... drowning. On a yearly basis, something about 2 - 5 mm, it's not much but they are constantly sinking ... The islands are practically not at all developed at this moment. Well, maybe it's good. Every now and then the subject returns (I read it in the Arab newspapers at the airport). No developer confirms these facts officially, but since 2009, work on the islands has been stopped except for Greenland, which is owned by Sheikh of Dubai. In addition, the archipelago is jinxed and subsequent investors fall into "disfavor" of fate (suicides, bankruptcies, accusations, arrests, etc.). In addition to Palm Jumeirah and World Islands, the construction of further islands began: Palm Jebel Ali - similar to Palm Jumeirah, but larger than it by half, Palm Deira even larger, located north of Jumeirah, and Palm Waterfront project, which should resemble moon and star Islam located south of Palm Jebel Ali. However, at the moment all work was stopped completely. If you want advice - despite the ongoing crisis in the real estate market and falling prices - maybe not buy yet ...
